The old pub building at 54 Ivy Street has come to the end of its life and we have been working towards a new facility for our work to continue into the future, for many years. We are now working in partnership with a local architect to bring the building to life again. We will gain a brand new, purpose built facility and he will have a lovely home on the upper floors.
The new facility for The Ivy Street Family Centre will comprise a ground floor, multipurpose, open plan room with kitchen and toilets, and a basement with a large meeting room and a large storage room, which will be used for Growbaby.
We will be able to continue our current services and expand to include sessions like baby massage, family cooking, sessions for children with additional needs and many more. We will also be able to offer space for other local services and groups to run their sessions, as well as hire out the space for private parties and events.
